Summer has arrived and things have possibly slowed down a bit. Mark graduated a few weeks ago and it was a wonderful time. It was nice to have a ritual to note such a monumental achievement. He was happy and I was so proud.
We slipped away for a few days to Lexington, Kentucky. Kentucky has always been one of my favorite states. When I was a kid I declared any place that had horses on their license plates was my kind of place. I begged my father to rip up our old lawn and plant bluegrass. Perhaps I thought if we planed bluegrass, horses would sprout up as well. This trip was quick, but just the refreshment we needed.
I have some deadlines early this summer and I'm weaving to meet them! This piece and I will sit together for awhile. It is a large brocade tapestry that I'm quite excited about. My work took a turn towards the end of the semester and something clicked. Through the encouragement of my peers and professor, I'm embracing some intuitive design concepts and going big.
